New Jersey Juvenile Justice Commission Holds Chess Tournament

Twenty-five juvenile residents from various JJC secure and residential facilities will compete in the JJC’s Invitational Chess Tournament. The JJC’s Office of Education coordinates the competition between JJC students from both secure and residential facilities. The teams competing in the Invitational Tournament have already participated in the JJC’s Allstate Tournament which was held last week.

In addition to teaching students the rules, offensive and defensive strategies of chess, the tournament focuses on good sportsmanship and resolving minor differences appropriately.
